Quoted from beelzeboob:
First of all, a couple of shout-outs.
Great seller alert: Lowepg. I bought my premium from him, and I'd buy any machine he's selling. Now THIS is how you pack and ship a machine:
He took a lot of crap from people about the price he was asking. But it wasn't unreasonable, and he did come down in price. Then he hooked me up with the guy who schlepped it up to me from North Carolina (more on that in a sec), offered to pay for more than half of shipping, and it arrived 24 hours after it left him in perfect condition. He threw in mods he had forgotten he had, and I found a bunch of Hemi mods in the machine that he also forgot about. When you consider everything, I got a great deal on a mint AC/DC.
I got the machine because I'm a huge AC/DC fan--and it's a big year for them--and because all the people here on Pinside who love it couldn't possibly be wrong. And they weren't.
You know what I learned? Sometimes you shouldn't even play a game on location because that will just ruin your opinion of it. With background noise and the volume down and no shaker or mods, AC/DC is just bleh.
Congrats, beelzeboob! I was wondering who bought lowepg's game. Glad to see he gave you a discount.
I know what you mean about low-volume music pins on location. I've walked away from a couple of AD/DCs on location because the operators had the volume turned way down.
Hope you get your volume issues sorted out. It's a great game, and everyone should get an opportunity to enjoy it.
